In the fourth episode of the CIED Saga podcast series, we’re featuring Nick Hazell, Founder & CEO of a three years old startup from Australia with a mission to slow down the consumption of animal meat. Combining our growing population with our increasing demand for meat consumption is putting us on the verge, and he strongly believes plant-based meat is the way forward.
Plant-based meat has brought unprecedented changes in the food sector and people’s diets, and has also opened the door for revolution. We’ve witnessed it since its emergence, as European people are keen to embrace veganism and have welcomed trends with open arms. Plant-based meat, a game changer in the food sector, paves the way for enhancing sustainability in business as well.
V2Food, an Australian startup providing plant-based food, has been gaining attention and recognition since its inception. It is utilising the most recent science from CSIRO to make delicious plant-based food that meets the demands of a rapidly expanding global population.
Enjoy the show and happy listening!
